    Hi,

    I'm a newbie and would greatly appreciate a hand. I'm stuck trying to get the graphics card to work. Drivers are installed, HDMI to monitor running through Graphics Card but it won't use installed Nvidia web driver, after reboot always goes to the OS X default. Now I got here by following the installation guide for Sierra 10.12.6 using Unibeast/Multibeast and I'm not sure where to start with clover... or how to proceed with "Mount EFI partition".

    In Multibeast/Customize should I load the "NVIDIA Web Drivers boot flag"?

    Hello.

    I can't boot with NVIDIA Web Drivers with a GTX 1050 Ti. When I inject NVIDIA drivers only I can boot but only shows 256MB or VRAM. I am on macOS 10.12.6 and the web drivers are 378.05.05.25f01. I already disabled integrated graphics.

    I can get to the apple logo loading but it turns off.

    I'm attaching my config.plist and my nvram.plist

    Thanks for the help

    UPDATE: I solved it using Nvidia Graphics Fixup on Multibeast. Now boots successfully with Nvidia web drivers.

    The problem now is that it doesn't play any video.
    Should I uninstall drivers and install them again?

    i'm having a similar issue with 10.12.6 and a 1050ti. I installed the drivers and everything worked fine until a couple of days ago. Now i get a blank screen at 3/4 of the loading bar. Any suggestions?

    Solved, my HDMI cable was slightly out of place. :( I have a dual install with win10 and everything was running fine on windows side, so i thought was a software problem.

    You must have your complete machine component list in your account's Profile (mobo, CPU, Graphics). We (I) do not know if you are using a Z87 or Z97 or Z99 or Z170 or Z270 or some lower chipset variant to answer you.
    If you are using a 100 series you must add 1 to 2 drivers to get the web driver to work. Further you must have a Plist command that initiates the driver to load. This can be done through MutiBeast or Clover Configurator. If your chipset is before the 100 series you still need the plist command but not the NVRAM drivers. Also the older Plist command(s) for video must be removed.

    The Sierra security update changes the build number for the OS from 16G29 to 16G1023, so webdrivers do not work.
    If the Webdrivers do not work you have to edit the

    Code (Text):

    /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist
     
    and change the NVDARequiredOS key to the new buid number "16G1023" and then rebuilding kextcache

    Code (Text):

    sudo touch /System/Extensions/Library
    sudo touch /Extensions/Library
    sudo kextcache -u /
     
    reboot

    Did that it shows loaded by my video card is now not displayed even cache rebuild. A message popped up stating the NVDAStartupWeb.kext could not load as it was not installed properly. Video rolls at login then settles down. I would say kernal extension(s) for Nvidia are not loading and this is confirmed in extension list under system report.
    This the plist text for:NVDAStartup.kext
    <key>NVDAStartup</key>
    <dict>
    <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.nvidia.NVDAStartup</string>
    <key>IOClass</key>
    <string>NVDAStartup</string>
    <key>IOMatchCategory</key>
    <string>IOFramebuffer</string>
    <key>IOPCIClassMatch</key>
    <string>0x03000000&amp;0xff000000</string>
    <key>IOPCIMatch</key>
    <string>0x000010de&amp;0x0000ffff</string>
    <key>IOProbeScore</key>
    <integer>100000</integer>
    <key>IOProviderClass</key>
    <string>IOPCIDevice</string>
    <key>IOSourceVersion</key>
    <string>10.17.5</string>
    <key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>NVDAType</key>
    <string>Official</string>
    This is the plist text for NVDAStartupweb.kext:
    <key>NVDAStartup</key>
    <dict>
    <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.nvidia.NVDAStartupWeb</string>
    <key>IOClass</key>
    <string>NVDAStartupWeb</string>
    <key>IOMatchCategory</key>
    <string>IOFramebuffer</string>
    <key>IOPCIClassMatch</key>
    <string>0x03000000&amp;0xff000000</string>
    <key>IOPCIMatch</key>
    <string>0x000010de&amp;0x0000ffff</string>
    <key>IOProbeScore</key>
    <integer>200000</integer>
    <key>IOProviderClass</key>
    <string>IOPCIDevice</string>
    <key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
    <string>16G1023</string>
    <key>NVDAType</key>
    <string>Web</string>
    </dict>
    Does the NVDARequiredOS key have to have 16G1023 for both kexts? Obviously I have to unlock permissions to change Plist texts in either of these? You will note NVDAStartup does not have a OS build in the string line...
